I have developed teaching strategies (constructivist practice) and ethical positions (fairness for all) that motivate students and stir them to reach their individual potential. I am experienced and qualified to teach a variety of students, from the very earliest pre- kindergartners to advanced learners.
High standards of organization, planning and my consistent use of assessments allow me to systematically facilitate growth and learning. My teaching philosophy privileges student engagement in order to attain student expression. My philosophy prepares students to be global citizens. Students must not only stuudents must not only study grammar, vocabulary and sentence structure, but they must be able to communicate through speaking and listening. They must understand cultural norms and subtleties. My strategies include direct instruction, facilitating age appropriate literacies such as research and presentation and structured conversations intent on expanding student perception of the larger world.
My goal is to assist in their joyful growth and development and inspire my students to use their intellects as they create a meaningful and noble life.

I took an 8 week lesson with Amadou. He made me feel so much more comfortable in my French! With his lessons, I was able to better understand the meaning behind French language and grammar which really helped me become more comfortable with my reading and speaking. He encourages you to participate and helps to find easy ways to help you learn and answer your questions. A great knowledgeable and supportive professor! Highly recommend!
Prof. Amadou teaches French with a profound passion and understanding of the language. He insprires his students to do well, ensuring success for them at every step. A superb teacher!
